Smalley, a small village on the main road between Heanor and Derby, seems fairly unremarkable if you drive past. But it has a fascinating story to tell, from medieval times to modern opencasting.Views: 651 | Enquiries: 1
Robert Mee can present a number of illustrated talks for your group.
Although Robert has an academic background, his talks are firmly aimed at a non-academic audience. And many of his talks cover a much wider geographic area than his main interests suggest.
All presentations are fully illustrated. They normally last from 50 to 90 minutes, but can be adjusted to suit your needs. Robert is often available at short-notice, if, for example, a speaker cancels. (His record for "emergency" attendance was when he received a call one morning while in the local supermarket, and was giving the talk to a group in the afternoon!)
He will bring everything he needs, though if you do have a screen (or suitable wall) to project onto it will save trying to fit a screen into a rather small car!
During the pandemic, Robert switched to giving online talks, e.g. by Zoom, and this remains an option for those groups which prefer this approach (the group organisers will need to facilitate the web session though).
Fees are £60, plus expenses if over 40 miles (return from West Hallam) involved. Robert is prepared to travel anywhere to give his talks, though most of his presentations are in the East Midlands, where he is based.
